Glue pennies or your Dad's favorite things to a frame for Father's Day! Tutorial at ThinkCrafts.com

This is the first Father’s Day in years that I will actually get to spend with my dad.  My girls are so excited to be going down to Florida to visit their GrandDude (that is what they call my dad), so when I asked them if they wanted to make him a special present for Father’s Day they were very excited.

My dad is not an easy person to shop for, (but really what man is),  so it took me a while to figure out what we could make him that he would actually use and appreciate.  Then, I thought of making him this penny frame.  My dad is an avid coin collector so I am pretty sure he will really love this frame.  I think the biggest issue may be him picking coins off to keep!

Both girls painted the frame. My little one is still a little young (she is 2) for the glue gun, so my oldest is the one that glued all the coins on.  They are both, however, extremely proud of the project and even posed for a picture for me to put in the frame they made.  Can’t wait for Father’s Day so they can give this to GrandDude!

Supplies

Directions

Paint your frame black (or color of choice)

About Tracey

I am a work at home mother of two living just outside Kansas City, KS. I started crafting with my oldest daughter to spend more time with her and to get her to focus more. And I have to say it has been a great experience for us both. As a matter of fact I have created a craft monster since she tells me several times a week “Let’s do a project MOM!” My youngest is finally at an age where we can start crafting with her too, but then comes the challenge of coming up with something a toddler can do that a preschooler will enjoy also… oh the challenges of a crafting mom. I hope to inspire other parents to craft and create things with their kids.
